An anti-Brexit group has issued an extraordinary statement today, effectively threatening to behead Her Majesty The Queen for her work in ensuring the democratic will of the people who voted for Brexit in 2016 is delivered.
Naomi Smith, the CEO of the pro-EU group ‘Best for Britain’ said after the Queen allowed for the proroguing of the anti-Brexit parliament: “It would make no sense for the queen to back this deeply undemocratic, unconstitutional and fundamentally political maneuver from the government.”
“If the queen is asked to help, she would do well to remember history doesn’t look too kindly on royals who aid and abet the suspension of democracy.”
Of course the Queen is not suspending democracy. She’s actually working well within the confines of the British constitution, as explained by A.V. Dicey in ‘The Law of the Constitution’ (1885).
The scholar wrote: “The House can in accordance with the constitution be deprived of power [when] there is fair reason to suppose that the opinion of the House is not the opinion of the electors.”
Best for Britain is funded by none other than billionaire George Soros, who is believed to have donated around £500,000 ($610,000) to the effort to kill off the Brexit referendum result from 2016.
Many of Soros’s business interests are reliant upon the crony capitalism and globalism the European Union represents.
Reuters reported in 2018:
News that billionaire financier George Soros is a backer of a campaign group seeking to keep Britain in the EU added fire to Britain’s Brexit debate on Thursday, with supporters of quitting the bloc accusing opponents of plotting a “coup”.
The Best of Britain campaign group confirmed it had received 400,000 pounds from Soros.
The statement by Best for Britain today hearkens back to King Charles I, who was deposed and beheaded after a protracted disagreement with parliament.
Defenders of the statement have taken to social media to claim the statement simply means the Queen will be perceived dimly by the public, a claim not borne out by public sentiment on the matter of Brexit.
Most Britons now want Brexit delivered, and quickly.
